The weather this weekend will be a little different to recent days. Today a few showers are likely in the west and tonight a band of rain pushes down across the northern half of the UK. Tomorrow it fizzles out as it clears southwards. Despite that, there will be a lot of dry weather and during the first half of next week high pressure keeps the settled theme going.

Saturday starts dry across the UK. There has been a widespread frost overnight and there is also dense freezing fog in central and eastern counties.

Through the day fog steadily lifts, but in parts of eastern England it could hang around into the afternoon. A few patchy spells of rain push into the west, but they won't amount to much and elsewhere it remains dry. Sunny spells develop in places.  

Temperatures range from 2C (36F) to 11C (52F), with the lowest values where fog lingers. See the rain and lightning radar for the latest view.

Quiet weather to start next week

Monday starts with patchy frost and fog. Dry conditions with variable amounts of cloud are expected through the day. Temperatures stay close to the seasonal average.

During Tuesday an area of rain probably fragments as it pushes southwards across the northern half of the UK. Southern and central regions have a dry day with frost and fog early and late.  

Through the middle of next week it is expected to be dry in much of the UK. However, a band of rain may move southwards on Thursday and be followed by a brief incursion of colder air from the north. High pressure then quickly builds back from the west to bring more settled weather..
